The countryside in Britain is unquestionably a wonderful place to live, the Campaign to Protect Rural England has said.
Spokesman for the charity Jack Neill-Hall said: "The benefits seem quite obvious, cleaner air, access to the beauty and tranquillity of the landscape, a greater sense of community - which is all too often elusive in some urban settings."
For these reasons, it is clear why many people love living in the countryside and why many urban-dwellers wish to.
Those residing in towns and cities may wish to put on their walking boots
and get out into the countryside whenever they can to go walking
amid the fresh air and greenery.
Mr Neill-Hall's comments follow a Halifax Survey on rural quality of life, which identified South Cambridgeshire as the best rural place to live.
However, some walkers might prefer to live somewhere more hilly if they were to swap the town for the country, such as the Lake District, Highlands or Snowdonia.
